What is live in care? It’s having a fully trained carer there to meet all your needs: help with washing, dressing, medication, preparing and eating food; help with chores, gardening and pet care. Perhaps most importantly a live in carer provides physical and emotional support that allows you to live in your own home, in familiar surroundings and continuing with hobbies and social events just like you always have done.
Quite simply, live in care helps elderly people remain independent, in their own home, with all the security of professional help close at hand 24/7.
When asked about live in care many people describe it as the support they need to live how they want to live, every day. That means going to bed and getting up when you want, eating what you want when you want – even the simple pleasure of choosing what to wear.
For anyone worried about their future care and worried about having to go into a home, finding out about live in care could put your mind at ease.
